Paulina Tenner, Founder of GrantTree will speak at the EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona on May 12-13

On May 12-13 we will be welcoming you to the 8th edition of the EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona. At this 2-day in-person event you are going to have the chance to rub shoulders with over 1,500 attendees from across Europe, including founders of Europe’s most promising startups, leading investors and internationally successful entrepreneurs. Our flagship event also features inspirational talks and speeches from Europe’s finest startup minds and a pitch competition sure to leave you at the edge of your seat. 

This year we have an incredible speaker lineup, next, we would like to introduce you to the founder of GrantTree, Paulina Sygulska Tenner!

Founded in 2010, GrantTree is a London-based fintech company on a mission to make innovating easier. GrantTree connects entrepreneurs with the funding they need to help businesses grow. Paulina founded the firm alongside Daniel Tenner out of a desire to deliver tangible support to startups, tech companies and other innovators, and to improve the ecosystem of support for these companies. Since then, the company, which is completely bootstrapped, has raised over £200m worth of equity-free grant funding for its more than 600 clients, helping fuel innovation. GrantTree now has a team of over 50 members supplying grants, funding and tax relief. 

Not only is Paulina the founder of GrantTree, but she is also a writer and investor on a mission to inspire other entrepreneurs with her radical and fresh perspectives on transforming the workplace. Her debut book, Laid Bare: What The Business Leader Learnt From The Stripper (currently an Amazon Hot New Release), speaks about what it takes to be an authentic leader and build a transparent business. Paulina also joined us at the 2018 edition of the EU-Startups Summit, where she delivered a keynote about entrepreneurship and BDSM – which was certainly popular!

GrantTree is an open culture company, pioneering a self-set salary scheme and a work culture governed by holocracy. Paulina will join us to talk about these strategies and create a workplace of the future to best empower your team.
